Are you trying to figure out what to do as this cold, snowy, New England winter comes to an end? We can’t get snow in April, can we?! As a volunteer for this year’s Green Street Arts Center benefit, I have just the thing! Join me in heading to the Caribbean at Green Street for a warm getaway from the winter weather (at least in spirit)!
Buy your tickets for Green Street’s Caribbean-themed benefit evening, A Feast for the Senses, on April 8th from 6-8:30 p.m. at 51 Green Street. Many interesting and valuable items will be available that night at a live silent auction hosted by Ray Hardman from WNPR’s “Morning Edition.” Plus, we’ll enjoy fantastic food, live bands playing music from Trinidad and Jamaica, and a salsa dancing workshop. Go to the following link to purchase tickets now: http://www.acteva.com/booking.cfm?bevaid=212786
From my own experiences, I can testify that Green Street is a terrific resource for families in Middletown and the surrounding CT area. I’ve brought my (almost) four and two-year-old daughters to Green Street’s music classes and I have also attended special events like the Bill Cosby benefit performance. Proceeds from this year’s A Feast for the Senses will help support Green Street’s Summer Arts & Science Academy and also the Young Women’s Leadership Institute.
So, come in from the cold to the Caribbean that waits!
I look forward to seeing you on April 8th!
